What is a blended class? This virtual class consists of a five-week self-paced portion with an exam and a one-day live webinar. Having both a self-paced (or asynchronous) and a live portion makes this a blended class. You must complete both the five-week self-paced portion and the one-day webinar to obtain credit.
The Design and Construction Contracting blended class incorporates knowledge checks, lesson quizzes and ends with a multiple-choice exam.
